WOW! Totally packed and filled with energy and excitement. Not a bad vibe for my favorite building in the city. Check out some photos.

Yes indeed, it was a very fun night. My only question is.... who can we talk to about getting those fantastic search lights back up on top... like the 1940's. That would be great!

I also was in attendance, and had a great time. Saw many friends, including a few Forumers (you know who you are!). Bought a couple books, and enjoyed chatting with the authors. Enjoyed the food, although it was nearly gone by the time I got to the table. Loved the views from the 32rd floor reception area!!! The only thing missing was a Guardian Building Birthday Cake!!!!

Thanks for the photos. I worked many years in that great building, and I think I recognize a couple of folks I worked with in the audience.

I guess I am still having trouble believing that my law firm offices on the 32nd floor are now the auditorium! About 20 years at that location before Michigan Consolidated Gas Company booted us out to take over most of the building for its own employees.
What a view we had. It's a wonder we got any work done. Great memories, however.

They don't build 'em like that anymore.

They sure don't. I'd put that building up against any building, in any city I've been to.

I too was at the Guardian Building celebration. It would have been nice if there was more room. It was packed! The sound on 32 was horrible you could hardly hear the speakers. The Guardian is majestic. We do have some gems in this town. Fisher Building, Penobscot, Buhl, Masonic Temple, and the D.A.C come to mind.

Neither did I. Also, neither did Jim Tottis, until after the fact. A staff member of the Guardian Building informed me about it, said that he went completely unnoticed the whole of the evening.

So what would be the reason for Spielberg to be at this event? or in Detroit? No mention of him being in Detroit anywhere in the media. If it were him, I can't believe that he could go unnoticed.

I didn't make it to the party, but I did take an out of town visitor there this evening.

I noticed a flat screen monitor set up on the lobby wall, and when you press a button, you get a 10 minute narrative of the Guardian Building's history... nice touch!
